GEMMA Collins revealed she's engaged for a second time to Rami Hawash and they plan to marry soon.
The pair have had a long history – getting engaged then splitting, then rekindling and splitting once more, until now where they have become 're-engaged' and are planning their 'forever together'.
The former Towie star, 40, and Rami, 46, first dated in 2011, enjoying an on-off romance for three years before splitting in 2014.
They got engaged in 2013 when he proposed by hiding a diamond ring in a Christmas pudding.
They briefly reconnected in 2017, but Gemma was back with James Argent soon after. However, she called time on that rocky relationship for good last year.
In April, it was revealed that Gemma and Rami had been secretly dating for six months.
They were spotted enjoying a romantic sushi dinner where they kissed and cuddled in public, taking cute selfies throughout the evening.
Rami owns a car mechanical repairs company in Romford, Essex and is father to three-year-old son, Tristan, whom is kept out of the public eye.

Recently Gemma has been seen spending time with Tristan and confessed the role of step mum has made her "definitely ready to have a baby".
Rami had appeared on Towie before, briefly in series nine when he jetted off to Marbella to see Gemma.
However, after just a few episodes, the pair called it quits and he never returned.
Rami was mentioned many times on the programme as the couple continued their on-off relationship.
Gemma and Rami's love story started back up again last year, after they rekindled the flame during lockdown.
Things got really serious again in 2021 and the pair sparked rumours of pending nuptials after Gemma was snapped wearing an engagement ring.
She revealed the ring she was seen with was the original engagement ring Rami had given her many years ago.
"He paid for a ring years ago, but I only wear it if I’m with Rav or my security guard, Sid." Gemma explained, referencing her pal and former Towie star Joey Essex after he had his £10,000 Rolex watch stolen at knifepoint on the street in 2012.
In an interview with The Times, Gemma opened up about wedding planning with her mum, and why the couple have not been more public about their second engagement.
"Yeah, but we can’t really come out and say anything yet because Ram was married before and his paperwork has not come through, so until that’s officially signed, we’ve not said anything.
"They’ve not been together for two years. I know her, she’s got a partner, she’s as good as gold.
"There’s a child involved, he’s only three, obviously I love him to death.
"But until that paperwork’s signed I can’t come out."
The usually flamboyant Gemma also surprised fans when she declared she wanted an intimate wedding at The Dorchester Hotel in London.
“We were discussing [the wedding] yesterday, me and Mum. I said, ‘Do you know what, I know this sounds bizarre, but I just would probably want no fuss on the day'," Gemma explained.
"Get a nice room there, Mum and Dad, stay there, my brother, his wife and two children.”
Located on Park Lane, The Dorchester Hotel is one of the world's most recognised hotels and sought after wedding locations.
